Arrival at Tulum Ruins
At the Tulum information center, everyone was given a listening device so we could hear the tour guide’s narrative easier in the great outdoors. A shuttle was waiting for us to travel a short distance to a drop-off point. There we would walk to the ruins by way of a trail through the jungle. Just before arriving at a long stairway I saw what I call the Guardian of Tulum – a large iguana that appeared to be looking over the group of 2-legged creatures (people) moving along the trail.

This stairway looked very long as
we began our climb to the top

The stairway was long enough that it tested me a bit, but I made it to the top okay. Then another short trek through the jungle where we finally arrived at the entrance to a narrow tunnel. Our small tour group had to walk through the tunnel in single-file. This made for a somewhat dramatic entrance when exiting into the open air looking out over the village.

Lynn and Maury are happy to have made it to the village ruins of Tulum

As soon as Lynn and I came out of the tunnel and were inside the gate to the village, we were ushered to a location for our official trip photo to be taken. This seems to be a common custom for many of the excursions we've taken.
